Search Tips

  •  Use AND to refine your search and narrow the number of results.  Example: alternative energy AND hydrogen

  • To search a phrase, enclose the term in quotation marks. Example: "alternative energy"

  • To find all possible word endings add an asterisk*  Example: infect* would find infects, infected, infection, infecting, etc.

  • Too many results? search the terms in the subject field, rather than all fields.

  • Still can't find what you need? Email Ask-A-Librarian.

  • Default Library Search is Keyword.  There is an Advanced Search option that lets you search by specific fields like Author, Title, or ISBN Number, and you can choose a specific Format or Publication Date.

  • Default Library location is Eastern Florida State College. You can change this to the campus that you use the most - ex. Cocoa Campus.

  • Tips if you get no results in a Library Search:  

    • think of other words (synonyms) for your topic

    • type in just one or two words for keywords, not an entire phrase or sentence

The EFSC Libraries use the Library of Congress Classification System to arrange print books and videos on the shelves.  LC Call numbers begin with a letter of the alphabet or a combination of two letters.  Library of Congress Classification - abbreviated version.
